Amplitude

Clip: Season 3 Episode 2 | 2m 15s | Video has closed captioning.

Science Museum of Minnesota instructor Janet Groenert and Minnesota Orchestra Percussionist Kevin Watkins demonstrate how playing his drum louder creates higher soundwaves with a higher amplitude, that also travel farther. When he plays softer, the soundwaves are lower and the sound can't be heard as well from a distance.
